6 IMPORTANT STEPS FOR EVERY SINGER!

Your voice is an instrument and you need to learn how to use it correctly. Doing these six steps will help you get the most out of your singing voice. Having a solid support system when you sing lets you produce clear and solid notes without any wavering. To be an excellent and strong singer you must have vocal support!

Step 1: Physical exercise and staying fit will really help a singer. When your body is in shape it is easier to sing the correct way. Vocal exercises are important as well; your voice is part of your body, so stay fit for your entire body which includes your voice.


Step 2: Always warm-up your voice before singing. The standard time for warming up your voice should ve 15 minutes. It may vary a little bit depending on the singer. Warming up your voice in the morning will take longer than in the afternoon or evening.


Step 3: The most important liquid you can consume for voice health is water. Keeping your mouth, throat and vocal cords hydrate will produce a thin mucus over the vocal folds (cords). When the vocal cords vibrate, they need to be lubricated. Coconut water is another great way to hydrate, as well as grapes. Sometimes water isn’t enough, unless it’s ph balanced.


Step 4: To improve you voice, have control and power requires diaphragm and breath support. Optimal support comes from using the abdominal, pelvic and lower back muscles. By using these muscles as you inhale and exhale activates the diaphragm. As you inhale and exhale, control the breath being release with these muscles.


Step 5: Sing songs that you love, this will enable you to connect to the song and feel the emotion of the songs message. The big difference between a good singer and a great singer is the feeling and emotions the audience feels from the performer.


Step 6: Excellent vocal technique allows singers to produce a warm, rich sound that is conducive to achieving a good vocal performance. Your posture, breathing, keeping an open throat (don’t let the muscles in your throat constrict and close the passage way), dropping your jaw and good enunciation are some important factors in technique. These five steps will help you produce a consistently good vocal sound. Listen to Abby Mejia singing “Look Up Child” who follows all six steps!


JOKE FOR THE DAY:

How can you tell if a singer is at your door?

They can't find the key and don't know when to come in.
